Bathroom specialist Ripples has been named one of the top franchise opportunities in the UK.
It has been ranked in the Elite Franchise Top 100 (EF100) among franchises in a variety of industries, including the likes of Subway, Molly Maid, Dream Doors and Kitchen Makeovers.
Sponsored by HSBC UK, since 2017, the EF100 assesses franchisors across a myriad of criteria, including revenue, the scale and velocity of growth, quality of training and support systems for franchisees.
Franchise director at HSBC Anita Roberts commented: “In this year’s judging, we also factored in how well brands have weathered the challenges posed by the ongoing financial crisis.
“Achieving a position on this list is a clear testament to the extraordinary achievements of the brands that consistently set the gold standard for franchise management.”
The past year has seen Ripples opening six new showrooms and increase the number of industry awards, across the group, to over 70.
Managing director of Ripples Paul Crow said, “We are delighted to rank in the award’s Top 100 list.
“We worked alongside our franchise partners throughout 2023 to rapidly evolve and develop the business to cope with a challenging environment, doing so with great success.
“Not only have we increased sales for our existing network, but we’ve also increased the number of businesses within our group with the opening of six brand-new showrooms.
“This prestigious acknowledgment caps of a great year for the whole Ripples team and we are proud to be recognised as an award-winning business opportunity for ambitious entrepreneurs too. “
